MET Exhibit: Assyria to Iberia

MetDawn
Seminarian and advisee Janice H. recently got to see the "From Assyria to Iberia" exhibit at the Met Museum in NY. She emailed me that there was a lot of interest from my OT course, including the Tel Dan Stele.  She snapped this photo (click to enlarge) of the stele without getting yelled at, and she correctly reports that the reference to King David is chalked in white.  In addition to many other fabulous pieces, she reports seeing pieces from the Northwest Palace similar to our own VTS Assyrian relief.
